A Novel Of The Black Dagger Brotherhood

#1 New York Times bestselling author J.R. Ward’s ferociously inventive series continues as the most fearsome member of the Black Dagger Brotherhood discovers just how tempting the night can be…

Anger is his only companion, and terror is his only passion—until he rescues a beautiful female from the evil Lessening Society.

Bella is instantly entranced by the Brother’s seething power.  Except even as their desire for each other begins to overtake them, Zsadist’s thirst for vengeance against her abductor drives him to the brink of madness.  Now Bella must help her lover not only overcome the wounds of his tortured past, but find a future with her...

    "What if I told you I had a fantasy?"
    Butch O'Neal put his Scotch down and eyed the blonde who'd spoken to him. Against the backdrop of Zero-Sum's VIP area, she was something else, dressed in white patent leather strips, a cross between Barbie and Barbarella. It was hard to know if she was one of the club's professionals or not. The Reverend only trafficked in the best, but maybe she was a model for FHM or Maxim.
    She planted her hands on the marble tabletop and leaned in toward him. Her breasts were perfect, the very best money could buy. And her smile was radiant, a promise of acts done with knee pads. Paid or not, this was a woman who got plenty of vitamin D and liked it.
    "Well, daddy?" she said over the trippy techno music. "Want to make my dream come true?"
    He shot her a hard smile. Sure as hell, she was going to make someone very happy tonight. Probably a busload of someones. But he wasn't going to be riding that double-decker.
    "Sorry, you need to go taste the rainbow somewhere else."
    Her total lack of reaction sealed the deal on her professional status. With a vacant smile, she floated over to the next table and pulled the same lean and gleam.
    Butch tilted his head back and swallowed the inch of La-gavulin left in his glass. His next move was to flag down a waitress. She didn't come over, just nodded and beat feet for the bar to get him another.
    It was almost three A.M., so the rest of the troika were going to show up in a half hour. Vishous and Rhage were out hunting lessers, those soulless bastards that killed their kind, but the two vampires were probably going to come in for a landing dis-appointed. The secret war between their species and the Less-ening Society had been quiet all January and February, with few slayers out and around. This was good news for the race's civilian population. Cause for concern for the Black Dagger Brotherhood.
    "Hello, cop." The low male voice came from right behind Butch's head.
    Butch smiled. That sound always made him think of night fog, the kind that hides what's going to kill you. Good thing he liked the dark side.
    "Evening, Reverend," he said without turning around.
    "I knew you were going to turn her down."
    "You a mind reader?"
    "Sometimes."
    Butch glanced over his shoulder. The Reverend was poised in the shadows, amethyst eyes glowing, mohawk trimmed tight to his skull. His black suit was sweet: Valentino. Butch had one just like it.
    Although in the Reverend's case the worsted wool had been bought with the guy's own money. The Reverend, a.k.a. Reh-venge, a.k.a. brother of Z's shellan, Bella, owned ZeroSum and took a cut of everything that went down. Hell, with all the de-pravity for sale in the club, he had a forest worth of green fun-neling into his piggy bank at the end of every night.
    "Nah, she just wasn't for you." The Reverend slid into the booth, smoothing his perfectly knotted Versace necktie. "And I know why you said no."
    "Oh, yeah?"
    "You don't like blondes."
    Not anymore he didn't. "Maybe I just wasn't into her."
    "I know what you want."
    As Butch's newest Scotch arrived, he gave it a quick vertical workout. "Do you now?"
    "It's my job. Trust me."
    "No offense, but I'd rather not about this."
    "Tell you what, cop." The Reverend leaned in close and he smelled fantastic. Then again, Cool Water by Davidoff was an oldie but goodie. "I'll help you anyway."
    Butch clapped a hand on the male's heavy shoulder. "Only interested in bartenders, buddy. Good Samaritans give me the scratch."
    "Sometimes only the opposite will do."
    "Then we're SOL." Butch nodded out at the half-naked crowd writhing on hits of X and coke. "Everyone looks the same around here."
    Funny, during his years in the Caldwell Police Department, ZeroSum had been an enigma to him. Everyone knew the place was a drug hole and a sex pool. But no one at the CPD had been able to pin down enough probable cause to get a search warrant-even though you could walk in any night of the week and see

In diesem Buch geht es um meinen Black Dagger Liebling, Zsadist, und Bella. Ich habe es auf Englisch gelesen, damit ich nicht so schnell fertig bin, ich also länger etwas davon habe. Hat auch geklappt. Obwohl ich manche Kapitel doppelt gelesen habe, habe ich alles gut verstanden und lese den nächsten band jetzt auch auf englis...

In "Lover Awakened" geht es um Zsadist und Bella, soviel zum Inhalt dieses Buches, denn eines werde ich hier nicht tun: Verraten, was passiert. Ich kann nur sagen, man leidet beim Lesen unglaublich mit den Charakteren und bisher ist dieses Buch auch mein Lieblingsbuch aus Wards Reihe um die Black Dagger Brotherhood.

Return of the dark warriors

3rd part in the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Zsadist has spent his youth and several more years as a blood slave, serving as a sex object for some evil mistress. He bears the scars of this time, on the outside and far more so in the inside - he is dangerous, evil and - as his twin names it: ruined. But now he is obsessed with Beth,... 3rd part in the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Zsadist has spent his youth and several more years as a blood slave, serving as a sex object for some evil mistress. He bears the scars of this time, on the outside and far more so in the inside - he is dangerous, evil and - as his twin names it: ruined. But now he is obsessed with Beth, a female Vampire abducted by the Lessers. When she is finally rescued, he tends to her, finding something in himself and even more in her, of which he never new he had it. But still, he feels inadequate, dirty and he fights the growing attraction with everything he has. And also, there is the Lesser that is still after Beth and Zsadist vow of revenge. - *** In a way, the darkest of the three books. There are several plots going on, but Zsadist is of course the main character. But you learn a lot about Phurry, V and Butch, the last two hinting to the next book. Some moments are sad, funny, moving or breathtaking. Very hard to lay the book down. A new 'species' is introduced and so many things remain to be taken care of, you will find the time till March very long - until Lover Revealed. Maybe just one point on the negative: the time lap of '18 Month later' could have been left out.
